Guild Hall presents a screening of The Opera House

General Admission: $18 ($16 Members) 

This new film by multiple Emmy Award–winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke surveys a remarkable period of the Metropolitan Opera’s rich history and a time of great change for New York. Drawing on rarely seen archival footage, stills, and recent interviews, the film chronicles the creation of the Met’s storied home of the last 50 years against the backdrop of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the ’50s and ’60s. Amongst the notable figures in the film are famed soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barber’s Anthony and Cleopatra; Rudolf Bing, the Met’s imperious General Manager, who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; Robert Moses, the unstoppable city planner who bulldozed an entire neighborhood to make room for Lincoln Center; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized. Running time 108 minutes. Tickets at GuildHall.org; Box Office 2 hours prior to screening 631.324.4050; GH Reception during Museum Hours:  Fri, Sat and Mon 11am to 5pm and Sun 12pm to 5pm.

Guild Hall presents the National Theatre Live screening of YOUNG MARX by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.

General Admission: $18 ($16 Members) 

Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors. It is 1850 and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one who can show you a better night “on the piss” than Karl Heinrich Marx. 

Tickets at GuildHall.org; Box Office 2 hours prior to screening 631.324.4050; GH Reception during Museum Hours:  Fri, Sat and Mon 11am to 5pm and Sun 12pm to 5pm; Theatermania.com or 1.866.811.4111.

Guild Hall JDT Lab presents ANDREW & ANDREW MAKE A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL: SOUTHERN GOTHIC SONGS & STORIES, a live musical performance. Songwriter Andrew Butler and playwright Andrew Farmer’s distinct musical and storytelling sensibilities share a common origin—they both hail from America’s oft-mythologized southernmost south: Florida! Alums of Ars Nova’s Uncharted music-driven theater residency, they put their distinctly oddball and heartfelt spins on the Southern Gothic tradition. In Andrew & Andrew Make a Deal With the Devil, they’ll share work-in-progress songs and yarns from across their off-kilter and winsome collaborations, including Parkland/Weathers (a sci-fi folk concert), Finn the Fearless (a Floridian fable), and Blessing (an small-town alt-country musical)-among others! Reservations encouraged at https://give.guildhall.org/JDTLab.

HIFF & GH present NOW SHOWING: a screening of THE DIVINE ORDER, directed by Petra Volpe. Set in Switzerland in 1971 when women were still  denied the right to vote.  The dutiful housewife, Nora, is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job. Her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of the town’s suffragette movement, and this newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats, and the potential end to her marriage. Refusing to back down, she convinces the women in her village to go on strike…and makes a few startling discoveries about her own liberation.

Guild Hall presents BroadwayHD’s screening of INDECENT by Paula Vogel

Inspired by the true story of the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance, this new play with music from Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel and director Rebecca Taichman is set at a time when waves of immigrants were changing the face of America and takes a riveting look at an explosive moment in theatrical history.
